Allies and Morrison’s York Central vision revealed

  • Comment

Allies and Morrison has unveiled its proposals for a 2,500-home regeneration scheme next to the National Railway Museum in York

The 45ha York Central scheme – masterplanned by the practice in conjunction with engineers Arup and landscape firm Gustafson Porter + Bowman – has gone out to public consultation.

As well as the homes, the scheme will deliver up to 100,000m² of office, leisure, cultural and retail space.

Sitting west of York rail station, the development will allow a range of historic railway buildings to be brought back into use.

It could also feature an expansion of the National Railway Museum. The museum has appointed WilkinsonEyre to undertake a feasibility study for the scheme.

York Central is backed by the York Central Partnership, a consortium of City of York Council, Network Rail, Homes England and the National Railway Museum.

The scheme comprises a number of neighbourhoods: Station Quarter; Museum Quarter; Cinder Yards; York Yard South; Park Street; Foundry Village; and Leeman Yards. A new Great Park will span the length of the teardrop-shaped site, framing views of York Minster.

A public exhibition of the scheme is currently taking place at The National Railway Museum in York.
